Seward Silver Salmon Derby

The Seward Silver Salmon Derby is a long-time family favorite for Alaskans and visitors alike. The annual competition brings anglers to Resurrection Bay each August in a bid to bring in the largest silver salmon.

Started in 1956, the derby is one of the oldest and largest in the state and derby days are Seward’s busiest fishing days each year, with thousands casting their line for the chance to win.
